Dish Network was originally introduced by EchoStar (then a different company) on March 4, 1996. While the logo's basis has been the same throughout its lifespan, its logo has had three modifications, two of the later ones which became the more prominent basis for its recent logo.
In April 2000, the 1996 logo was modified, and the slogan "Nothing Else Compares." was dropped from it. This would since then become the foundation for the next two logos below.
On August 16, 2005, the Dish logo was slightly updated by having the bottom portion completely dropped from the logo, amonst other changes. This update was originally meant to reflect the new "Better TV for All" initiative that Dish offered for the next 6 years after this logo's introduction. During its usage, the logo sometimes appeared without the word "Network".
To coincide with the rise of its new family of receivers (dubbed the Hopper and Joey, respectively), Dish refreshed its identity on February 1, 2012. The orbit on the top and the word "Network" were both removed completely, and its logo was colored completely red to retain its color scheme.
